BMC Ecology and Evolution is calling for submissions to our Collection on "Plants under pressure: the impact of environmental change on plant ecology and evolution."
Plants are our ancient allies, sustaining and nourishing life, yet many human actions are putting them increasingly under pressure. Worryingly, 39.4% of all plant species are now threatened with extinction, according to Royal Botanic Gardens Kew's 2020 State of the World's Plants and Fungi report. To highlight this issue and support the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 6: Clean water and sanitation, 13: Climate action, 14: Life below water and 15: Life on land, BMC Ecology and Evolution calls for research on the impact of environmental change on plant ecology and evolution.
